Prom Night

Hi,  Cardies,   This week at STAMP-N-DOODLE we have a wonderful challenge for you.  Create a design using BOLD, BRIGHT Colors.  My BOLD Color here is…Yep, You guessed it “Silver” (LOL)!  My bright color is yellow!  The sleeve and skirt of this dress were colored using a glaze made with  Silver Liquid Pearls and Hampton Arts Crystal Glitter.

Question:  Am I the only one who cares to remembers when “Sweet Sixteen” was truly a milestone in life?   Here is a list of the things I was first able to do at Sixteen: (1)  Paint my finge and toenails; (2) Purchase my first pair of shoes with heels (french heels only); (3) Receive company (which meant that a boy could come and sit on the front porch with  me, my mother, my grandmother and my grandfather who kept a firm grip on his “walking stick” HA, HA); (4) Wear  “Nylon Hosiery”, but only to church.  Girls were not allowed to wear hose to school in those days.  Bobby socks were the order of the day.)   I know things have changed, and there is a lot more out there for  teenagers now.  Oh, here’s another list of things that were foreign to me at sixteen: (1) School Shootings ;(2) Teachers sleeping with Students (3)Teen Suicides; (4)  High Rate of Teen Pregnancy.  In my twelve years of elementary,  Junior and High School Education, I only knew of 3 girls who got pregnant and they were seniors in HS and married the fathers of their children); (5) The Terms Baby’s Daddy and Baby Mama Drama; (6)Teen drug addiction.    Perhaps having so much to look forward to helped us enjoy living in the moment that we were experiencing, and, I guess all those layers of clothing gave people more time to think about what they were doing!’    What can I say, I’m in a strange mood today….Peace!  Chana

About Chana Malkah

I am a "bubbie" (translation: grandmother), clinical supervisor(pediatrics) and an avid cardmaker. I enjoy making stationery sets and giving them to family and friends. This blog is for those who are just starting to explore cardmaking and other papercrafting. I have been away from cardmaking for about five years and was astounded by all the exciting changes in the craft. When I started stamping back in 1998, I only worked with wood mounted rubber stamps, metal stencils, markers and embossing powders and ink. Now there is a whole world out there and I hope we can explore together. In just eleven short months, I have gone from being afraid of posting my being invited to join two design teams and waiting to hear from two more! Pursue your Passion!
